Invalidating stale software suspend images gentoo
See the Gentoo Handbook (here and here) for details on the first three; to customize the Wi Fi regulatory domain, start the , and reboot when prompted.
to the micro SD card will take some time, due to the decompression (it takes between 10 and 25 minutes on my machine, depending on the micro SD card used). Next, insert the (Gentoo) micro SD card you just wrote the image to into the Pi.Also please note that all images (and binary packages) are provided 'as is' and without warranty.You should also be comfortable with the (at the moment, unavoidable) non-free licenses required by the firmware and boot software supplied on the image before proceeding: these may be reviewed here.As mentioned, it is wise to use a spare micro SD card as your target, keeping your existing Raspbian micro SD card in a safe place; that way, you can easily reboot back into your existing Raspbian system, simply by swapping back to your old card.to the micro SD card will take some time, due to the decompression (it takes between 5 and 25 minutes on my machine, depending on the micro SD card used).It should exit cleanly when done - if you get a message saying 'No space left on device', then your card is too small for the image, and you should try again with a larger capacity one. Ensure you have peripherals connected (with the display plugged into the HDMI0 port - the one nearer the USB-C power connector - if using an RPi4), and apply power.
You should see the Pi's standard 'rainbow square' on-screen for about 2 seconds, then the display will go blank for about 10 seconds, and then (once the graphics driver has loaded) a text console will appear, showing Open RC starting up.
Once this is done, it will launch a standard Xfce desktop, logged in automatically to the pre-created , please see these notes (the shipped defaults should work fine for most users, however).
As of v1.3.1 of this image, you can also use the bundled GUI tool (shown in the screenshot above) to modify (some of) these settings. Be aware that, as shipped, it uses UK locale settings, keyboard mapping, timezone and Wi Fi regulatory domain; however, these are easily changed if desired.
Additionally, on the RPi4, the use of dual monitors is supported (but not required) as of version 1.5.0 (as is accelerated graphics, via V3D / Mesa).
And, there is no 3Gi B 'memory ceiling' anymore: if you are fortunate enough to own a 4Gi B Pi4, all 4Gi B of that RAM is usable.
Install base MATE Desktop applications that are recommended for the most common usage; for example, this installs the file manager.
